What's next, bodyguards on Everest?

Mountaineers on Everest suffer attack

I never thought I would read about work place violence on Everest, usually the danger there comes from more "predictable" risks.  I found the reference to jealously on the part of the Sherpa's to be especially interesting.  I witness daily the negative and corrosive effects that people with less than pure motives have on organizations and teams, although I was not there and can't say for sure having only read one side of the story, but the account from the mountaineers seems pretty rational and measured. 

Bottom line, glad these guys are okay and also glad that it appears all parties somewhat resolved their issues before departing.  A potential line has been crossed though, hope we don't see more of this.

From another point of view, I've been mentally rehearsing a "bail out drill" from 7000M all night, not fun and definitely not something I'd want to try.  Also, wonder who will be the first to contract a PSD team to tag along on the next Everest trip?
